  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, each cut into 4 equal long pieces

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 4 large whole wheat tortillas, cut into 1/2-inch strips

  • 16 slices green olives


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet or spray a skillet with non-stick cooking spray over medium-high heat; cook chicken until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate to cool enough to handle.
  • Wrap each chicken piece with a tortilla strip, starting at 1 end and overlapping tortillas when starting a new strip and leaving a gap at the top for the ‘face’. Place ‘mummies’ on a baking sheet.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until tortillas are crisp and chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. Cool mummies for about 5 minutes; place 2 olive slices on each ‘mummy’ for the ‘eyes.’
